Couldn't RHP have an avatar database where users could leave pictures or use pictures put in their by Russ for their forum image.
That way there would be no problems with avatars which need a password to be accessed.
People might end up with the same avatars but would that matter that much. I may not be able to keep my avatar because i went onto google and found it on a website and that website could go down or be taken off the internet by the owner or the picture could be moved or deleted. If all avatars were transfered to RHP then the pictures would always be there.
I don't know what sort of strain that would put on the servers or databases so i'm sorry if this idea seems a little stuipid.:
